Liquid crystalline thermosetting epoxy oligomer DD-A was synthesized with Diglycidyl ether of 4,4'-dihydroxy-α-methylstilbene (DGE-DHMS) and aniline in a ratio of 2:1 and cured with a catalytic curing agent, 1-Methyl Imidazole. The gelation times and vitrification times were measured to create Time-Temperature-Transition Diagrams with liquid crystalline phase changes. It was found that the gelation and vitrification times were decreased as the concentration of curing agent increased, and the vitrification curve showing a typical S-shape was confirmed.

Diglycidyl ether of 4,4’-dihydroxy-α-methylstilbene (DGE-DHMS)에 aniline을 2:1의 비율로 첨가한 액정에폭시올리고머인 DD-A를 합성하고 촉매성 경화제인 1-Methyl Imidazole을 이용하여 경화시키며 겔화 및 유리화 시간을 측정하여 액정 변화가 포함된 Time-Temperature-Transition Diagram을 작성하였다. 경화제의 농도가 높아질수록 겔화 및 유리화 시간이 감소함을 확인할 수 있었고 유리화 곡선은 전형적인 S-형태를 보였다
